Nirvana Dosa Concert – World Music With Indian Classical & Folk
Nirvana Dosa will be an eclectic blend of sounds from Folk and Ethnic India with Classical elements fused with World Music. It is a light-hearted entertaining music concert, integrating a narrative that motivates us to explore our passions and opening ourselves to love.
The melodies that flow through the artists are influenced by street music and folk expressions from the rural landscapes of south India and Bengal, and some influenced by the Hindustani Classical Traditions.
This evening will be a coming together of sorts, as all the creative expressions that have emerged from the magical journey of the producer and performer Mehboob Sohel, will be given sound. A spicy mix of ambient and uptempo groove, this performance will be a cross-genre entertainer.
